"Maybe the journey isn't so much about becoming anything...maybe it's about un-becoming everything that isn't you so you can be who you were meant to be in the first place" --Anonymous. The baggage we carry: stress, anger, anxiety, sadness, frustration, irritability, intrusive memories -- what if you could drop those burdens, that unbearable weight, and be your true self? Who would you be? If you knew you could be free, what would you do differently?

Imagine a ghost who is haunting a person when they are most vulnerable to taking control of them. This is the way trauma shows up in our lives. It slowly reveals itself, and every encounter is scarier than the previous one. Furthermore, no one else can validate this experience because they cannot see the ghost at first, which leads the person to feel alone, isolated, and vulnerable. I can come alongside you as you overcome this ghost. You can overcome your trauma in therapy with a safe and supportive environment to take on whatever it is that is haunting you.

Female Therapists

Does it matter what gender my therapist is?

In general, this is not an important factor, as there is no relationship between a therapist’s gender and their efficacy. Some clients, however, prefer to see therapists of a particular gender, whether due to their own past experiences with men and women, or ingrained beliefs about how people of different genders think and behave. Exploring the roots of such preferences and considering what one wants to address in therapy can help someone determine whether their therapist’s gender truly matters to them.

Should I see a female therapist?

Many people—not just women—prefer to see a female therapist, either because they believe that a woman will be able to relate to their specific challenges (for example, sexism in the workplace) or because they imagine feeling more comfortable disclosing sensitive information to a woman. Such beliefs may not turn out to be accurate, however, and adhering too rigidly to a gender preference can at times hinder a client from finding the best therapeutic match.

Do therapists get specific training to help with women’s concerns?

Therapists are trained to provide care to clients of any gender. However, some therapists—both men and women—may pursue additional training in feminist therapy, gender-specific issues, or women’s mental health. Female clients may wish to ask prospective therapists whether they have received specific training in the client’s primary area(s) of concern, or whether they have worked extensively with women on issues similar to their own.

How can I inquire about a therapist’s experience in treating women?

It’s OK—even encouraged!—to ask a therapist directly whether and how often they have treated women in the past, or whether they have treated women dealing with the client’s most prominent concern(s). Competent therapists will be happy to share their educational background, preferred treatment modalities, and prior client experience to help an individual find the therapist best suited to their needs.
